quick, on-the-spot sketches from this week’s watercolor class at Loominous Rugs in Providence, RI
In today’s watercolor class we worked with the figure. Here are my thoughts on a photo of soccer players -such a cool photo!-brought in by a student.
Join me for roving watercolor classes in Thursday afternoons in Providence, indoors and out, all manner of subjects and locations. A la carte class cards available here.

Yesterday we began the summer session of roving watercolor classes in North Providence. Once again I am impressed with my intrepid students and by the fact that we can all sit down to make a picture in a busy day. To go someplace new, brave the unexpected, figure out where I am in the park, even. After all that they are greeted with a combination architectural / water feature (gasp). I am amazed they don’t go running to sit down to a nice civilized lunch instead. Of all things, with so much to do, despite the traffic and being needed by family/people/groups, and a complicated bridge staring them in the face we sit down for a few minutes and paint.
